I can't get sound in a vmware vm over linux terminal server connection.

I am trying to find a way to get all of the computers in my home to use Linux as a base operating system. However, some of my family members do things on the computer, mainly the on the internet that seems to works best with the Windows operating system they usually involve some proprietary media players. I am a regular guy that just likes to tinker with things just for the sake of tinkering. No book or professional knowledge just hands on trial and error.

I have been trying to find information on this topic on the internet but have been unsuccessful so far.

I have installed Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 on my system using the alternate install method. The LTSP server is running and I have migrated a copy of a Windows XP vm to the system. Additionally, I have installed the 2.5.1 version of vmplayer because I was having problems getting the 2.0 version which I had been using to work with Intrepid.

I can boot a thin client from the terminal server and run the Windows XP vm. However, as it comes up it gives a message saying "Cannot connect to virtual sound device. No corresponding device is on the host.

I have seen posts where this is mentioned outside of a terminal server connection and have seen the possible solutions to that scenario. That doesn't help me. Anyway, I don't have the sound problem when using the vm locally on the terminal server.

Is there a way to this? If so could someone point in the right direction or to something that I can read that will help me along my way to getting this setup on my system?

Thanks for any help.
